|Backlit Perilla in our garden- Weedy sort of Basil-ish plant but very pretty, especially up close.|
GLOSSARY OF CAROLYNN-ISMS FOR THE TOTALLY OR SOMEWHAT CONFUSED
BOKEH- NOT a Carolynnism but a bona fide photographic term for the background blur in nice "artsy" photos- see above
BEESES-bees ( are you seeing the pattern??)
BUMS- bottoms, situpons, back ends etc
TRUNK SHOW- a display of a body of work as IF it had been carried about in a trunk or box from venue to venue. I will be taking about 35 of my quilts "on the road" to a guild meeting locally and speaking about them. MY quilts will get to and from the venue in the TRUNK of my car- which some of you may call a BOOT. That said, the TRUNK in TRUNK SHOW would mean more of a travel trunk. Are you confused now? I am.
THE DREADED SPON- who knows?? It is a condition inflicted upon us via the Goon Show which starred Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan. No one really knows what it is but here it serves as a sort of metaphor to me for an unexplainable illness or wound that seems to have been visited on DH this week. The Goon Show was a BBC radio show that ran from 1951-1960. It was insane, absurd, hilarious and the basis for MUCH modern comedy- along with the influences of Monty Python( which, in turn was heaving influenced by the Goons!)
There! Did I cover everything?? I hope so and I apologize profusely for any confusion caused my my attack of the Sillyses!!! Enjoy your weekend and stay cool.
